One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Randle Patrick McMurphy thought he took the easy way out. To skirt prison time for battery and gambling, he faked insanity and earned himself a shorter sentence in a mental ward. But he finds it’s not so much a ward as a totalitarian state run by the iron-fisted Nurse Ratched. Randle’s the type to push his limits, though, so instead of falling in line with the other patients—including the strong, silent “Chief” Bromden and the stuttering Billy Bibbit—he organizes a gambling operation, disseminates wine, calls attention to Nurse Ratched’s figure, and nurtures general rebellion. But he may soon find that Nurse Ratched has had enough.

The product of Ken Kesey’s time working as an orderly in a mental institution, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest remains relevant more than a half-century after creation, reminding audiences that freedom must clash against oppression to endure. After leaping from the page to the silver screen as an award-winning film starring Jack Nicholson, the story makes its way to the theater, filling the stage with wit, chaos, and those little white pill cups.<p>

Theatre VCU

For nearly seven decades, Theatre VCU has worked toward two goals: to help create a new generation of theater artists and to ensure the tanks on their applause-powered generators stay full. Young performers, costumers, scenic and lighting designers, and stage managers all hone their crafts and nurture their talents with the theatre—and they manage to create some pretty great art along the way. Recent productions have included the R-rated puppet musical Avenue Q, Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone, and George C. Wolfe’s powerful classic The Colored Museum.
